I learned a lot about marketing and logistics in this programme. Besides, the class “Self-Development ” taught us to learn about ourselves in a deeper way so as to be a good leader. It’s important for students who will run their business in real life. My classmates are businessmen and businesswomen who are focusing on MBA degree and they already had a concrete base about the topics. That’s the reason I have put much afford in catching up with the class.

In the end of our session, instead of taking an exam, we were required to complete a project implementing the knowledge we acquired from class about marketing. The project allowed me to have a better understanding of business management.
Our classmates came from all over the world, who come from China, the Philippines, France, Italy, Germany, and Brazil. The exchange of culture and ideas among different countries brings more fun to the class.

The most impressive activity in this programme was visiting the logistics company in Budapest. They showed us what logistics is and how it affects in the industry.

Students who choose this programme will need to search for and reserve your own accommodation before you set off to Budapest. The host university (ESSCA) is more than happy to provide assistance when you have inquiry on searching for accommodation.

Other comments:

For non local students who apply visa at Guangzhou in 2018, the passport has to be mailed to Beijing and the passport along with the approved visa will be delivered back to Guangzhou pick up point. If it’s not urgent, you may choose to have the passport mailed back to your home (it cost around RMB200 for the EMS).

I was grateful that I could make friends from all of the world in this programme. I have to seize the chance to improve my English skills, not only in written but also in speaking.
